Hi, I have a 2008 Trutech TV that I am trying to hook my cable box up to.
Hi, I figured it might be easier to just take pictures of my setup.
My TV is on channel 3 - I took a picture of what I am seeing on the screen and included it here.
I don't have another TV to try it on.
I think so? It says X1 TV Connected. See attached photo. Is there something I have to do with the actual cable box? The Internet router is already set up - not sure if everything was activated back when I set the Internet up in May.
When I go to the activation website, it only gives me the option to reinstall the entire service at my address. Is there a way to just activate the box separately? I am using a splitter - splitting one way to the internet modem/router (working fine) and the other way to the cable box, which is then connected to the TV.
The TV is on Channel 3. I got the remote to connect, however it only changes the volume and turns the TV on and off - it wont change the channel. When I change the channel manually on the TV, it goes off of the error screen and just says No Signal.
You will have to program the remote to change the channel on the cablebox. Instructions here:https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/programming-your-xfinity-remote/
The TV MUST stay on channel 3.
I was able to program the remote using one of the codes that Xfinity suggested, but it only changes the volume and turns the TV on/off. It doesnt let me change the channel at all.
The TV is on Channel 3.
